In defense of 87.4lbs...

Hi Everyone,

My return to regular blogging has been slow. It's not that I don't want to share what I'm feeling throughout this transition, I've just been SO busy! Between classes, work, a touch of a social life and talking to Ben, everything's really packed in.

My weight this morning was 182.6, so actually .2 up from my low two weeks ago. I'm not letting the .2 bother me. I am really hoping to be back on track with loss next week, but considering my weight was up to 189 a week ago, I'm happy.

What I am really trying to do is respect the 87.4lbs I have already lost. In less than a year, I am a completely different person, and I need to acknowledge how far I've come, rather than constantly wanting the next goal, the next set of numbers. I've come a long way, and I am trying to constantly remember that.

I think it's good to take a step back now and again so the scale doesn't make us CRAZY! You are doing an amazing job! Enjoy the happiest time of your life college :)

Good attitude -- definitely keep reminding yourself of how well you've done. It's absolutely true, and you are going to keep moving toward goal. It really doesn't matter if you get there slowly, as long as you keep moving forward. I'm definitely evidence of that! Glad you're back in blogland, lady! :)
